Children with mental disorders including Gender dysphoria / delusions and body image disorders need care with the informed consent of the Parents / legal guardians. Age of Consent and mental competence are essential component for all medical care, and this is being entirely deliberately ignored. It is like saying that an 12 years old (or at any age) with Anorexia Nervosa who is 5 foot tall and 55 lbs in weight, just because she thinks that she is too fat, the medical professionals should “affirm” her and do surgery to remove any subcutaneous tissue they can! This is preposterous and NOBODY will even think of it.
Another meme said: A 5 years old boy claimed that he was a pirate, so he had one eye and a leg removed and will have a hook placed for the hand!
These surgeries / procedures are nothing other than mutilation and create more mental distress leading to more suicides after the interventions.
Saying that the “mother would rather see her daughter die” is only bringing extraneous emotional issues to the topic of what medical care should be.
